Blue Is The Warmest Colour

GQ - Tommy Ton

A month of Men’s Spring/Summer 2015 fashions will be wrapping up next week. I used to get lady wood for the clothes that made their way down the runway or that stood still for a presentation when the both the Men’s and Women’s shows would roll around—but “ready-to-wear” was oh-so-very loosely defined and the luxury prices much too high for my overtly modest living. Now, it’s the fashion seen on da mean streets of Pitti, Milan, and London etc that gets me off. Yes, I know, people who attend the shows put a lot of effort into looking like they effortlessly put themselves together so uniquely and creatively. But you gotta love ’em for giving a damn. The same cannot be said for 78% of the people who work in my building…

Men wear blue all the time. But these men wear blue like they give a shit and don’t it look nice?

There’s way more where that came from…

From the vast horizon that is the interwebs, I came across an article from Mashable, praising the amazing-ness that is, and I quote, “yet another fashion” app. Yes, there are lots out there. No, I haven’t heard of most of them. But this one, this is one you’ll be glad to know. A burst of street-style inspiration in the tiny palm of your freshly-manicured-for-spring hand. The app promises an array of various blogger (and a bit of commercial) styles, from bohemian, Navajo and Ikat print inspired to colour blocking prepster. You can also “buy” their style –with each photo comes a suggestion to cop what the wearer’s wearing –a feature I could go without. What would set this app over the top for the fashion set? A link back to where the photo came from.

Expect to see some Coachella garb, as well as some street styles from the men.

Oh and by the way –it’s called Kaleidoscope. And it’s free.

Which fashion apps are you using?

Toodles!
